It is the mission of the Central Business Association to serve as the lead advocate for Downtown El Paso. We are an indispensable resource for all downtown businesses. Downtown El Paso brings a great diversity, initiative, and enterprising spirit to the El Paso economy and adds to the overall quality of life for our city.
The El Paso Central Business Association (CBA) is a 501(c)(6) business organization established in March of 1997 by a merger between the Downtown Development Association (previously in operation for over 50 years) and the South El Paso Revitalization and Redevelopment Association (previously in operation for over 16 years). The CBA is represented by a Board of Directors and full time staff with over one hundred years of organizational, advocacy and administrative experience.
Joining the Central Business Association is like adding an employee to your business who is dedicated to working on your business issues! Your voice is represented in important business issues, whether Federal, State, and local. Your ability to utilize City services and work with City Hall becomes a reality, not an impossibility!
